A well-recognized intellectual and scientific niche is the first step towards Academic Success. While niche establishment depends on the quality of your research, its recognition is primarily determined by the successful presentation of your findings to the scientific community. Therefore, manuscript writing is a key factor in your academic success. Clear writing is one essential reason that papers are accepted for publication and grants are funded. In this context, communication, defined by the reader’s comprehension of your written message becomes the key to your success.

Dr. Laure Aurelian, who also leads OFDD’s quarterly K-Award workshop, will discuss different strategies to help you develop your own clear way of data presentation. She will explain reviewers’ and readers’ expectations and the most common misconceptions and provide an overview of the strategies to be used for writing clarity and impact. Attendee participation during the session is tantamount to the learning in this workshop.
